I'm not bitter and twisted in the least Wasa .......... in fact, I am very upbeat about Carlton's future.
While Ratten left the place looking like that house on TV the other night ........ the one with the clothesline stuck up a tree and an old couch sitting up on the roof ..........Malthouse is the answer ..... if he's given the time.
I bagged Ratten and called for his head and said they had to chase Malthouse, and they did.
I bagged Murphy last week, the very next day, the coach didn't defend him when he was publicly criticised for his piss poor efforts. (Hasn't laid a tackle since the under 12's)
I've said the place needs to turn over its list ...... Malthouse came out and said the same thing the other day.
This year was always going to be a year of just evaluating the playing stocks for Malthouse, and in shifting them around in various positions etc to see what they could do ...... and nothing more. I never expected them to make the finals given their list, but its served its purpose and Malthouse can now put a line through some players names.
He can see what needs to be done, who needs to stay, who needs to go ... so it might take a year or two for the full clearout of all the deadwood to occur ....(cause there's a huge amount of it) ....... but a much brighter future is on the horizon I reckon. They just need to keep Malthouse around now.
